The Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference has officially announced the revival of cross country! On Monday, October 15, the CMAC will host a conference championship meet at Withrow High School!

This meet will feature a handful of our schools competing in both girls and boys Varsity races. We plan to begin the girl's race at 5:00 pm and the boys will start at approximately 5:30 pm.

Each team will be allowed a total of 3 scoring runners while students race across a 2-mile course. In addition, the first nine runners to cross the finish line for boys and girls will also receive medals and placement in the all-conference teams! Come out to support the growth of cross country as an official CMAC sport and find out who's crowned CMAC champion!

After seven weeks of high school football, we're slowly starting to see a playoff picture form. In Division IV, we could very well see Aiken and Taft both capture playoff spots, as they currently rank at #6 and #7 in Region 16!

What makes things more exciting, is that these two teams are slated to go head-to-head at very last game to be played at current Stargel Stadium in week 10, potentially for the CMAC title (pending what happens until then).

In the meantime, Taft has a huge match-up this week at Western Hills High School as the Mustangs have put together an impressive season AND currently sit at #8 in Region 4 rankings. Both teams come into the game undefeated in the CMAC and will need wins to strengthen their resumes.

With three weeks of football to play, the CMAC looks strong with a potential three playoff teams! Make sure you follow @cmac_sports on Twitter for score updates and news!

Week 1 of Ohio High School Football started on a high note as Stargel Stadium hosted Woodward and Withrow High Schools on Wednesday, August 22. As a feature in the Skyline Crosstown Showdown, Cincinnati Public Schools showcased one of the oldest rivalries around!

Emerging sophomore, Denarius McKenzie was named game MVP as he ran for 115 yards and 2 TDs! Woodward comes back next week as they'll host Chaminade Julienne at Woodward High School on Friday, August 31.

On Thursday night, the Taft Senators hosted the Thurgood Marshall Cougars at Stargel Stadium as another feature in the Skyline Crosstown Showdown.
